I have fought scorching flames, reported on bomb threats, hung out with a homeless man and his dog, trudged through ankle-deep mud, conducted a rooftop interview, flew in a hot air balloon and endured way too many scuffs, scrapes and bruises, in order to get “the shot.” And I love every minute of it. 
I have worked at several daily and weekly newspapers over the past 10 years, including The Record Searchlight in Redding, Calif., The Daily Advocate in Greenville, Ohio, and most recently with the Newport Beach Independent in Newport Beach, Calif.
My work has included photography, writing, design and layout.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, traveling and spending time with my husband and pets.
